Self-acceptance




Many of us hide the parts of ourselves that we think aren’t acceptable. We give up who we are to become someone we’re not. The mask I wore at a young age was Ms. Nice Girl. I hid my feelings so well that I didn't even know what they were. I put a smile on my shame, insecurities, pain, disappointments... I swallowed my feelings so often that in later years, it was no surprise that I ended up in the hospital with gut issues. One of the most beautiful gifts we can give ourselves is self-acceptance. Finding the courage to be who we are is not an easy. It requires commitment, strength, and a bit of hope...
